Webinar: Live Q&A - A Master's Guide to Container Securing


Webinar: Live Q&A - A Master's Guide to Container Securing

Online, 03 February 2021

As part of the Standard Club Loss Prevention department’s continuing commitment to safety at sea, a number of ‘Master’s Guides’ have been produced in recent years. The Master's Guides focus on delivering best practice advice on key areas of vessel operations to avert avoidable claims and prevent accidents, casualties and incidents at sea. The third and most recent guide to be updated is 'A Master's Guide to Container Securing'. This new guide revises the advice on applying extra lashings to realign the publication with current standards and includes additional advice on design roll angle and the container securing arrangement, periodic checks of lashings, and avoidance of overtightening lashings.

During this session the reviewers of this guide, plus guest industry experts, raised key issues and discussed best practice with regards to container securing and take audience questions/queries on the contents of the guide. 

  • Capt Kirk McGregor, Senior Surveyor at Standard Club
  • Capt Yves Vandenborn, Director of Loss Prevention at Standard Club
